And a horse can be a "dunskin", so buckskin with dun markings, which was probably the case of your mare, jyuukai, or she was just a buckskin with countershading.
Abby is shedding out a decent amount finally, and she has random sootiness on her. Particularly, her jaw, withers, shoulders, and hips. It looks like she rolled around in dirt, but it's dark hairs. I imagine she'll continue to shed out and then lighten up to normal.
That's why I said true dorsal stripe. Countershading and a dorsal stripe aren't the same thing.
My mare was definitely a dun with buckskin colorings. She also had the barring on her legs to prove her dun gene. I hate the term dunskin though, along with dunalino. Ugh, I don't know why, those two things just bother me lol.
